UFA is a thriving and progressive co-operative with a passion for agriculture and an affinity for rural life. We are committed to being a market-driven organization that is recognized as the leading provider of quality products, services and solutions that support agriculture and serve the rural community.

We are a co-operative with a mandate to create value for our owners and customers through our unwavering commitment to strong financial performance; relevance to agriculture producers; and connection to the rural community.

In doing so, we believe that UFA will become the preferred choice of owners, customers, business partners and top-performing employees who share our passion for this business.

Core Values

Business Description

UFA Co-operative Limited is one of Alberta’s most dynamic enterprises. UFA has an unmatched network of 113 bulk fuel and cardlock petroleum outlets, 35 Farm and Ranch Supply stores and 24 outdoor adventure stores operating under the Wholesale Sports banner. Our employees and independent petroleum agents strive to provide products, services and solutions to farmers, ranchers, consumers and commercial accounts throughout Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan.

Since its founding in 1909, UFA has grown from a small-scale local co-operative into a comprehensive enterprise with 2.1 billion in annual sales and nearly 120,000 active members. While UFA has grown and changed over the years, at our heart remains a commitment to agriculture and to the communities we call home.

UFA is proud to be part of the 2012 International Year of Co-operatives (IYC) celebrations to empower the world’s cooperatives. UFA was identified as one of the most well-known Canadian co-operatives by IYC. We want to spread the word about how co-operative enterprises build a better world and encourage widespread participation in this year’s events. We had the privilege of hosting one of many provincial launch events at our UFA Farm and Ranch Supply store in Red Deer, AB. We also participated in and spoke at the Calgary IYC national launch.

Small Town Heroes Contest

To celebrate extraordinary people, UFA, in partnership with Juno award-winning artist Paul Brandt, has launched the third annual UFA Small Town Heroes contest. In June, we will be searching for extraordinary people that are engaged and making a difference in their communities. The contest itself is aimed at communicating to members that UFA is not only passionate, but committed to investing, supporting and celebrating both groups and individuals that share UFA’s devotion to life in rural Alberta.

We have an abundance of growth and development opportunities and an informal open-door culture. And with such a diverse company, the ability to explore new areas of interest is always possible.

Small town values meet big business.
